Imam Reza (a.s.) was asked about the Ziyarah of Imam Kazim (a.s.) and he replied: Pray in the mosques around the grave and recite the following – which can also be recited at all the holy sites:
Peace be on Allah’s saints and His chosen ones. Peace be on Allah’s trustees and His loved ones. Peace be on Allah’s supporters and Caliphs. Peace be on the places in which Allah can be known. Peace be on the houses in which Allah is remembered. Peace be on the ones who manifest Allah’s orders and His prohibitions. Peace be on the ones who call to Allah. Peace be on the ones who are settled firmly in that which pleases Allah. Peace be on the ones who are loyal in obeying Allah. Peace be on the ones whom those who follow them have followed Allah, those who are inimical to them are inimical to Allah, those who know them have known Allah, those who ignore them have ignored Allah, those who seek refuge with them have sought refuge with Allah, and those who desert them have deserted Allah. I make Allah as a witness that I am at peace with those who are at peace with you. I am inimical to those who are inimical to you. I believe in that which is secret about you and that which is apparent about you, and I rely on you in all of this. Allah’s curse be on the enemies of Aale Muhammad (a.s.) from the Jinns and men and I seek proximity to Allah by being aloof from them. And Allah’s blessings be on Muhammad and his progeny.
Imam (a.s.) added: It can be recited for any of the Infallibles. And after that invoke further blessings on Muhammad and Aale Muhammad (a.s.) and name them one by one and dissociate from their enemies. Then choose some supplications and pray for yourself and believing men and women.
